Today/ Friday, Food Lion will hosting three job fairs in the Triangle in Raleigh, Cary and Durham. According to Food Lion, the chain is looking to hire about 300 full time and part-time jobs.
On Thursday, Kroger announced that it will lay off more people than what was originally estimated. According to Kroger, 118 people at each store will lose their jobs — that’s a total of 1,652 people.
Originally, company representatives said it would be about 1,500 employees.

However, reps say there’s no guarantee those losing their jobs will get a job at the new Harris Teeters taking over.
